Last 22 May Boqueria Market took part in a conference on Markets and Trade in Galicia, held in Santiago de Compostela. The conference, which was of a technical nature and dedicated to traders and technicians from markets throughout Galicia, dealt with the different types of market regulation, new private models and gastronomic areas.
The Boqueria continues to arouse interest all over the world among both professional trade visitors and persons with an interest in gastronomy. During the past thirty days the Market has been visited by different groups from South Korea, China and Lebanon.
The Market received a visit from a group of representatives from the Centro Vivo Commercial Network of Valdivia. During the visit, a discussion was held on topics such as the Barcelona markets model, its direct regulation or the importance of tourism in the city.

It is formed by 15 members and chaired by Salvador Capdevila, who was its president during the last term, and with Jordi Mas and Eduard Soley as vice-presidents.
